EXCLUSIVE: Shapiro Raised $1.78M Over the Summer

josh-shapiroIt was a busy summer for Josh Shapiro.

According to his campaign, the Democratic nominee for Attorney General has raised $1.78 million since late May.

“Our campaign proved that Pennsylvanians want a people’s Attorney General – Josh raised $1.78 million over the summer, which is more than any other candidate — Republican or Democrat, challenger or incumbent — in the history of the office during this time period,” Shapiro Campaign Manager Joe Radosevich told PoliticsPA.

Radosevich stated that this is the most cash an AG candidate has raised over the summer of an election year, eclipsing Tom Corbett’s total in 2008.

“We’re confident going into the final stretch that we’ll have the resources to beat back our opponents’ desperate attacks and the outside special interest groups looking to prop up his campaign,” he concluded.

Shapiro, a Montgomery County Commissioner, is running against State Senator and Republican nominee John Rafferty for the open Attorney General position.

  1. The Rafferty candidacy is a complete joke. He will not even have half the money Shapiro will have, is way behind in party registration, was a low level functionary at the AG, never supervised a large office, is a terrible speaker and an all around terrible candidate -before- the top of the ticket does its damage. He will lose 55-45 on his best day. Neither is qualified as a prosecutor. Rafferty isn’t even qualified as a leader and is going about the politics of this election like a clown. Shapiro fixed a corrupt government once before, supervised a county with 3000 employees, is an excellent public speaker and very good leader. Plus he runs circles around Rafferty as a politician. The GOP had its head in its rectum endorsing this guy. Typical for the GOP though. When did it last win a statewide election? Toomey 6 years ago?

  2. Has anyone asked Shapiro if he will prosecute Johnny Doc? Or if he will give 180k back. Or the 300 k Doc funneled thru Ryan Boyers laborer PAC?

  3. I guess the school charter people aren’t an outside special interest group.

    I think the definition depends on whether their money is inside or outside your campaign bank account.

  4. In spite of the Spin, what it means is he is a quintessential insider, with a growing list of paybacks.

  5. Which elected Democrats were charged with felonies today? And which Democrats will be charged with felonies tomorrow?

  6. Great, Shapiro has even less relevant experience than Kathleen Kane is playing politics to an even greater degree than Kane with the AG’s Office. Just what we need.
